“Best B + B in a long long time, or even ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Fantastic all round, (thank you). Welcome, accommodation, food, position in relation to bus routes, town, beach etc all very good indeed. Key for access. The cost is a little more than perhaps you would expect, but everything concerning this b+b is worth it. Very helpful regarding parking permits, whats on and anything else you might ask really.
You need to be able to climb stairs.
My only slight negative was the tv which was not the best reception and it went "off" occasionally. Mind you wasnt in the room long enough to worry too much about it.
Would highly recommend a stay here if you need to be in or in vacinity of Worthing.

Room Tip: Room No 3 is at back of house. Nice and light. Shower, loo and basin is on suite. (dont know about...

We were made to feel welcome the moment we arrived,Our room had a sea view and was spotless.The bed was extremely comfortable,I never woke up in pain like I do at home.
We were given a front door key to enable us to come and go as we pleased.Our Breakfast was very filling and nutritious,the amount of choice was excellent.No matter what you wanted it was never too much to ask.The young waitress was pleasant and polite (and very smart).
We would most certainly like to come back and have recommended this place to family and friends.Thank you for making our stay so pleasant.
Heather & Jock Lindsay.Bury.

Room Tip: I am sure that all rooms would be as good as the one we had at the front of the hotel.

The Moorings is the most relaxing, comfortable hotel we have stayed in Worthing , Sarah and Colin are very pleasant and worming , the Breakfast has made my clothes shrink (I loved breakfast and over eat).

The room was spotless and comfortable and our friend loved the small room so will definitely go back in June next year with our Visually impaired friends whom were impressed with the help and support they got from Sarah and her team

Room Tip: From small to large our party loved them all Ann loved the small room

Very friendly and helpful. Just like being home.
If i needed anything they found a way to get it.
Clean and comfortable.
Close to the breach and a place to eat. I would pick this place again.
Great breakfast every morning. Only complaint none.
Bed was very good to sleep in.

I stayed here while working in Worthing. It's in a good location close to the sea and resturants in the town centre. The rooms are clean and well equipped although the decor is a cosy/chintzy and the tv signal is not consistent in the single room. I didn't mind it, but the seagulls do make a lot of noise early in the mornings so no alarm clock needed. The breakfasts were very good but long term stayed discounts were only available if staying 7 days a week and not if you only stay during the week which was dis-appointing.

Just to correct this comment you have received a much reduced rate for your stay as we do for all our business people staying Monday to Wednesday or Thursday, the rate you have been charged every week of you stay is at least 20% less than our standard room rate, we did not charge you any more than this rate, even when the single room was not available and you stayed in our double rooms or even our family room.
As for TV signal you did not comment during your stay so did not provide us with opportunity to offer assistance - no body else has commented but we will check this out
The Seagulls are part of staying by the sea and are not part of the service provided by this guest house, so should not form part of this review.
we are disappointed you marked us down on service as we do feel we went above and beyond in accommodating you (mushrooms specially brought in for you, Girly chats in the evening when upset, provision of the Laptop, chargers and hair straighteners even loaned a mascara at one time)
we do not feel a 3 point service is fair and that is extremely disappointing

The Moorings is about as close to the epitomy of an English B&B as you can get.

It's as lovely and comfortable, friendly and clean a place to stay as you'd wish to find if you were running a place like this yourself. As someone who has travelled away from home frequently over a number of years and stayed at impersonal chain hotels, serviced apartments and other B&Bs, Colin & Sarah provide a wonderful place to stay for either the individual on business or families.

The rooms are well prepared for your arrival and the rooms are of a comfortable size as you would expect from a Victorian Villa.

Overall, after 8 weeks staying with them this summer, it's a lovely place to stay and have no hesitation saying thanks for having me to Colin and Sarah.
